Every year, 20% of produce is rejected from grocery stores due to their imperfect appearance.
Over 6 billion tons of fruits and vegetables are unharvested each year for the very same reason.
These ‘misfit’ vegetables have the same taste and nutrients as the ones that are harvested and sold.
LET’S GIVE THE MISFITS SOME LOVE!
412 Food Rescue and Penn’s Corner Farm Alliance is launching the region’s first ever Ugly CSA.
Our unique Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program empowers you to create a demand for imperfect and unloved produce that would otherwise go to waste.
HOW TO GIVE LOVE:
The CSA will run for 8 weeks in August and September.
Each FULL SHARE is only $15–the entire subscription is only $120.
You will receive CSA boxes of one-of-a-kind-looking produce at 40% cheaper than leading CSA prices in the region.
Show your love for the produce that have dared to be different, but still maintain all their goodness.
There will be two pick up locations:
Penn’s Corner Farm Alliance Warehouse
150 54th St. Pittsburgh, PA 15201
Olive & Marlowe
5975 Broad St, Pittsburgh, PA 15206
This is a PILOT so SPACE IS LIMITED and will be on a
FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE basis.
WE HAVE REACHED THE MAXIMUM NUMBER OF SIGN UPS! THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST!
